support and Services, LinkedIP reserves the right to: (i) impose limits on Customer and/or its
Users’ and Administrators’ usage of the Services; (ii) charge Customer the applicable per
minute rate; (iii) or to terminate the Services, in each case (i) through (iii) notwithstanding

number of calls made and/or minutes used by Customer and/or its Users and/or
Administrators, is not consistent with normal, fair, and reasonable use of such Services.
Wherever reasonably possible, LinkedIP will provide Customer with a written notice before

use. The restrictions contained in this Section 5 are not exhaustive or exclusive. LinkedIP may
impose additional restrictions upon notice or posting to the Site from time to time. LinkedIP

and in addition thereto, Customer’s use of the call recording functionality must comply with any
and all local laws and regulations including local notice requirements thereof.
6. Local Phone Numbers, Toll Free Numbers and International Numbers
6.1 Usage Rules.
As part of the Services, LinkedIP may make available LinkedIP or Affiliate's numbers (‘LinkedIP
Numbers’) to Customer in multiple countries. LinkedIP has agreements in place with regulated
providers of electronic communications which provide LinkedIP with phone numbers from
multiple cities, states and countries. The provision of LinkedIP Numbers is subject to the
numbering rules and regulatory practices applicable in the geographic region where Customer,
Users and/or Administrators have markets or are located as well as in the relevant country(ies)
and locations from which the LinkedIP Numbers were purchased. Such rules and regulatory
practices may change or be amended from time to time, and LinkedIP therefore reserves the
right to modify the terms hereunder to the extent necessary to comply with such changes or
amendments. Customer may purchase LinkedIP Numbers and assign them to an Account
subject to the allocation requirements displayed upon Customer’s subscription to any Services.
Customer shall use the LinkedIP Numbers in compliance with any and all applicable Law
including such applicable allocation requirements. LinkedIP reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel the subscribed LinkedIP Numbers for any or no reason, including in the
event Customer, its Administrators and/or Users breach such applicable allocation
requirements without penalty and without prejudice to its rights to claim damages therefore.
In using the Services, Customer may request an LinkedIP Number or may port its existing
numbers (“Existing Number”) into Customer’s Account subject to the terms and conditions
herein. In order to request the porting of an Existing Number into an Account, the Account
Administrator for the Account into which Customer wishes the Existing Number to be ported
must complete all steps listed requested by LinkedIP including the disclosing of account
information, credentials, PINs, and any other relevant service provider and/or third party from
time to time. Customer must provide accurate and detailed information to LinkedIP, any other
relevant service provider, and/or third party in order to port a number into an Account and
Customer represents and warrants that such information is and will be at all times accurate,
true and up-to-date. Customer acknowledges and agrees that as part of the porting process,
LinkedIP, any other relevant service provider and/or third party must, as part of its compliance
with applicable Laws and industry standards, follow certain processes and that therefore the
completion of any number porting request may be delayed for reasons outside of LinkedIP’s
control. LinkedIP must, by Law, comply with all valid porting requests. Phone numbers may be
ported-out of an Account in connection with acts or omissions of third parties and Customer
acknowledges that: (i) it may be difficult or impossible for LinkedIP to prevent such porting out
of numbers from an Account; (ii) LinkedIP may not be able to retrieve a phone number ported
out of an Account; and (iii) LinkedIP shall not be liable for any such porting out. Upon
termination or cancelation of an Account, all telephone numbers associated with the Account
may be released by LinkedIP if such numbers have not been ported to another provider prior to
such cancelation or termination. Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is solely
responsible for coordinating with its new third-party provider to port out any telephone
numbers prior to termination or cancellation of Customer’s Account and/or termination of this

make outbound and inbound calls and enjoy out of the box integrations. At the end of the Trial
period, Customer may purchase additional products and services not included in the Trial by

the relevant Proposal or Agreement For Services, the fees to be paid by Customer that are
associated with such Plan shall cover for Unified Communications and add-on fees,
Infrastructure fees if applicable, fixed Communication service fees if applicable, Software
Support fees and Managed Support fees if applicable. For the avoidance of doubt, fees
associated with SMSes, WhatsApp For Business API messages, and calls (where applicable) shall not be included in the Fixed Fees unless specified in the proposal or the Agreement For
Service. Fixed Fees may be updated by LinkedIP at any time, and LinkedIP will endeavor to
provide notice of such update prior to its implementation. Such updated Fixed Fees shall be
effective on the first day of the next Renewal Term.
7.3 Usage Fees.
The fees to be paid by Customer that are associated with inbound/outbound calls, where
applicable (for example when they are not included inside a Plan), shall be calculated by
multiplying the per-minute rate applicable to such calls (“Per-Minute Rates”) with the
Chargeable Time (as defined below) (such fees, the “Usage Fees”). Usage and the duration of
calls shall be calculated as follows: (i) in full-minute increments; (ii) calls shall be rounded up to
the next full minute increment at the end of each call for invoicing purposes; (iii) calls will be
deemed to begin (A) for outbound calls when a connection to the number Customer is trying to
reach is established and recorded in LinkedIP’s system, and (B) for incoming calls when a
signal connection from the caller is recorded in LinkedIP’s system; (iv) calls will be deemed to
end when Customer or Customer’s correspondent have ended the call or where the call has
ended due to a technical malfunction, but a call shall not be deemed ended until Customer’s
signal of a call disconnect is recorded in the LinkedIP system; (such calculation of the duration
of calls as detailed in (i) through (iv) included, “Chargeable Time”). LinkedIP may change the
Per-Minute Rates at any time and will endeavor to provide notice of such change prior to its
implementation. Such change shall be effective on the first day of the next Renewal Term.
Customer may request the Per-Minute Rates currently applicable by sending a request
to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Services shall be subject to the following conditions: a)
Outbound calls, conference calls, and calls to premium numbers (where applicable) will incur
Usage Fees; b) inbound calls on local numbers to Customer will incur in Usage Fees regardless
of the geographic region where are originated; c) all inbound calls on a toll-free phone line shall
incur Usage Fees; d) any internal calls or communications (including calls, voicemail deposits
and call transfers) between Users, or between a User and an Administrator, shall be free of
charge provided such calls have been made using the Services; e) outbound calls for which
LinkedIP receives answer supervision (i.e. connecting time) including ring time, shall incur a
minimum of one (1) minute of Chargeable Time (answer supervision may also be generated by
voicemail systems, private branch exchanges, and interexchange switching equipment); f) calls
forwarded to mobile phones or landlines shall be deemed outbound calls and shall incur Usage
Fees; g) calls received by Customer from a third party using a local/toll-free phone line which
call is subsequently forwarded or transferred shall be deemed to be the same call; h) SMS shall
be billed in segments of 160 characters each; I) WhatsApp messages shall be charged
according to WhatsApp For Business API policy of charges which at at time of this agreement
is to charge by sent/received message.
7.3.1 Deposit for Usage Fees.
At the sole discretion of LinkedIP it may be required that Customer prepays or deposits certain
amount of money to cover for estimated usage fees during the first billing cycle.
7.3.2 Credit Limit for Usage Fees.
Upon the evaluation of certain factors such as but not limited to payment history, credit
worthiness, references or the sole LinkedIP discretion, a Credit Limit will be assigned to
Customer. Credit Limit allows Customer to make and receive calls and messages without
having to prepay for its cost. Credit Limit will make Customer to increase its current balance
and such balance shall be paid at the closing of a billing cycle. Some Credit Limits require
Credit or Debit cards on file as a way to secure payment. Removal of such payment methods
may result in removal or decrease of the Credit Limit.
7.3.3 Collection of accrued balance.
in the cases of eventual changes to the average Usage Fees, or at the sole discretion of
LinkedIP, and at any time during the billing period, LinkedIP may withdraw from current
payment methods any accrued balance. Failing to pay this balance once requested may lead
to the termination of this agreement.
By providing a valid credit or debit card information or any other approved payment method
(“Payment Method”), Customer expressly: (i) authorizes LinkedIP and/or any other company or
individual acting in LinkedIP’s name to charge the Payment Method as follows: (x) monthly for
Usage Fees; at the billing frequency chosen and specified by Customer on the relevant Order
Form or Purchase, as applicable, for Fixed Fees (the “Billing Frequency”); and (y) for any and all
other fees in connection with the Services including recurring payments billed on a monthly or
annual basis and to continue attempting to charge and/or place holds on such Customer’s
Payment Method until such amounts are paid in full; (ii) agrees to update such Payment
Method from time to time as necessary; and (iii) acknowledges and agrees that LinkedIP shall
not be liable for any expired credit/debit card, insufficient funds or other charges Customer
incurred as a result of such attempts to charge, and/or place holds on, such Payment Method;
(iv) agrees to to keep a valid Payment Method is in Customer’s Account at all times. In the
event Customer selects a Plan that includes a predetermined allotment of services, unless
otherwise specifically provided as a part of such Plan, any unused allotment of such services
from one billing cycle will NOT carry over to any future billing cycle. Customer agrees that it
shall be responsible for any and all fees, if any, associated with wire transfers used for payment
of invoices to LinkedIP. All invoices shall be paid by Customer within five (5) days of the invoice
Unless specified in the Proposal and the Agreement For Service the Fees are exclusive of
applicable taxes and surcharges required under Applicable Laws, including communication
fees, surcharges, costs/disbursements, charges, regulatory assessments, or any other duties,
levies, registration fees or taxes which shall be charged additionally. The invoiced amount and/
or amounts charged to the Payment Method may hence fluctuate from month to month and
Customer agrees to pay any and all fees and/or taxes due.
From time to time the governing telecommunication law may deploy new taxation methods,
surcharges, fees or charges from now on Regulatory Fees. LinkedIP would do its best effort to
absorb any new regulatory fees to not alter Customer pricing. In the event this is not possible
LinkedIP will notify Customer of the charge of such new fees.
7.6 Late Fees.
Pursuant to the local governing commercial law, any balance remaining outstanding on any
invoice after thirty (30) days of the invoice date may be automatically increased by the greater
of the legal interest rate applicable. LinkedIP may, in its sole discretion, suspend Customer’s
access to the Services and/or terminate this Agreement in whole or in part, in accordance with
Section 13.2 without any liability whatsoever and without prejudice to its right to claim all
amounts due by Customer to LinkedIP, as the case may be.
8. Refund Policy
Unless agreed differently and specified on the Agreement For Service, all prepaid fees,
particularly fees related to Managed Professional Services, as well as other payments by
Customer under these terms are non-refundable and non-creditable.
